Together with the Confucius Institute of Chiang Mai University (CICMU), Traidhos is pleased to share a new cultural event with our international community – to celebrate Asian traditions and to learn more about East Asian culture and traditions. Join us as we celebrate the Autumn Moon Festival, a special event observed throughout East Asia.

The Autumn Moon Festival is inclusive and non-sectarian with no religious overtones – a ceremonial reunion of three generations. Most importantly, it is a symbol of great community spirit. Traditionally, the Autumn Moon Festival is celebrated as an extended family feast at which moon cakes are the dessert highlight.

We welcome all members of the Traidhos Community and local public to come join us for our first celebration of Autumn Moon Festival at Traidhos for an evening of fun, entertainment and beauty. It is a very child-friendly event and organisers will be presenting an array of celebration activities for the whole family to enjoy: a water dragon dance, a moon cake baking contest, a poetry recitation contest, a water-colour land/seascape painting workshop, a lantern-making shop, and Autumn Moon Festival snack stands offering Chinese and Thai snacks. The evening will conclude with a fireworks show.
